G Diapers / Cloth Diapers

OK...so for all you cloth diaperers out there I want some advice. We've been using Fisher Price Happy Days and Happy Nights disposable diapers on Lexi since they came out (probably about 10 months now)...but I really want to start using cloth. I bought 3 of the G diaper covers...but also bought the "flushable" inserts. So far, I like this. I don't have to "store" dirty diapers until laundry day...and I am also not throwing away any disposable diapers. The inserts are biodegradable and flush right down. The issue I am having is the cost of the covers. I paid $40 for 3 covers. Now, maybe I didn't do my homework before hand...but I think that's crazy! I know, I know...the money I'll save in the long run not buying disposables makes up for it, but still. We don't have alot of excess cash right now to spend a few hundred dollars on diaper covers...and my local resale shop doesn't sell diaper covers for "sanitary reasons".

Can anyone recommend a budget friendly way to convert to cloth? Anyone know of any websites I can order inexpensive diaper covers? Any etsy shops sell them?

Try ebay or amazon.com you may get lucky.

If you do take the plunge go for those that have snaps rather than velcro. I am in the process of changing out the velcro for snaps because after 16 months of washing the velcro has had it. Kind of irritates me considering I spend so much money.

Try looking for used online. Also, I've seen lots of Etsy sellers, but I can't recommend any in particular. But, yeah, cloth diapers are expensive. But that is because they are well made and they last!

Also, check into some online dealers, like diaperlab.com. They often have gently used diapers that honestly are super clean. Personally, I'd stay away from Happy Heiny, they leak, but I love my BumGenius diapers.
